    All nice finds. I love the General's gear and helmets,
    also the many canteens and covers !

    I read somewhere that the 'Legion of Merit'
    was sometimes given/awarded upon
    retirement after a lengthly career.
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thank you, gentlemen!

    Yes, I was quite surprised when I got the call from Pasquale's wife. I'm glad I was able to purchase the entire grouping so it stays together. Had it made it to the yard sale, it could have easily been pieced out. Meeting the General was of course an experience in it's self.

    As for the Legion of Merit, I assume it is Officer Degree and Pasquale was awarded it when he made Brigadier General. It however wouldn't surprise meif they were issued for long service upon retirement as you said, Steve.
